Rotman’s book gives a treatment of homological algebra which approaches the subject in terms of its origins in algebraic topology. In this new edition the book has been updated and revised throughout and new material on sheaves and cup products has been added.
The author has also included material about homotopical algebra, alias K-theory. Learning homological algebra is a two-stage affair. First, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor. Second, one must be able to compute these things with spectral sequences.
Here is a work that combines the two.

Back cover copy With a wealth of examples as well as abundant applications qlgebra Algebra, this is a must-read work: The author provides a treatment of Homological Algebra which approaches the subject in terms of introducrion origins in algebraic topology. In this brand new edition the text has been fully updated and revised throughout and new material on sheaves and abelian categories has been added.
Applications include the following: Learning Homological Algebra is a two-stage affair. Firstly, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor, and what this describes.
Secondly, one must be able to compute these things using a separate language: The basic properties of spectral sequences are developed using exact couples. All is done in the context of bicomplexes, for almost all applications of spectral sequences involve indices. Applications include Rotjan spectral sequences, change of rings, Lyndon-Hochschild-Serre sequence, and theorems of Leray and Cartan computing sheaf cohomology.

An Introduction to Homological Algebra
Over the past four decades, he has published numerous successful texts of introductory character, mainly in the field of modern algegra algebra and its related disciplines. Now, in the current second edition, the author has reworked the original text considerably. While the first edition covered exclusively aspects of the homological algebra algera groups, rings, and modules, that is, topics from its first period of development, the new edition includes some additional material from the second period, together with numerous other, more recent results from the homological algebra of groups, rings, and modules.
The new edition has almost doubled in size and represents a substantial updating of the classic original. All together, a popular classic has been turned into a new, much more topical and comprehensive textbook on homological algebra, with all the great features that once distinguished the original, very much to the belief [of its] new generation of readers.
The book is mainly concerned with homological algebra in module categories The book is full of illustrative examples and exercises. It contains many references for further study and also to original sources. All this makes Rotman’s book very convenient for beginners in homological algebra as well as a reference book.
